Perhaps you have answered yourself in the thread subject, use a DMZ. I wouldnt trust such a basic unit with so many PAT rules..

The DSL-302g is definatly NOT the modem you want to be using. Not only will it cause your connection to reset just when you need it most, but its throughput sucks when you're pounding it with so much 'random' traffic. Get something like a Linksys AG241, which IMHO is one of the best ADSL/2/+ modems out there, and for $150 you can't really go wrong.

But for now, describe your network setup. Do you have a router in between the modem and your server? Is the modem plugged into the router's Internet port or just a LAN port?

Also, to get ports 80 and 23 to forward correctly, you will need to telnet into your modem and set the ports it listens on differently. In true D-Link crapiness, even if you de-allow remote administration, it will still listen on those ports and reply with nothing. More information can be found here:

thx for the reply m8. i found out that i have mcafee installed and it blocked every single thing i am hosting. lol

i did DMZ but stuck coz of that mcafee firewall... no router, juz DSL-302G and a switch. configured DMZ and switched off mcafee , installed microsoft loopback adapter and everything was fine. hosting works, server running fine. but for hosting a gaming server... lol upload speed sux... also the stupid data caps. the modem is fine. didnt crash etc yet. server has 120 users atm but lag complain recieved from players. hate to admit... i would like the modem more if it could create more then 12 nat rules >.< forced me to do DMZ =.=

You realise that now on the DMZ your PC is in the open, right? I mean check that you don't have shared files and printers enabled to start with.

Also, yes, running a server on ADSL, where the upload speeds are limited is not the best plan. If you have 120 users and a good number hit your server at the same time, you won't be able to do much.

If you want something good in this area, try TCL cable modem, assuming you are in a covered area. Get the plan with 10Mbps/2Mbps and you will see what I mean.

hey snoop, you may get some benefit from a static IP or a dynamic IP hostname service such as
But about the D-link, even small tasks such as bit torrent can be too much for them consider a better ADSL modem-router

^^ i know bout no-ip. used for my webserv running on xampp.

not sure it works @ hosts file.

i always think that hosts files are supposed to redirect ips only @@ example :

to                   from
ip add             ex.ip.address/name

sry if i didnt mention.. the address is hard coded into the client.. only way to change it is to go thru hosts file,edit & recompile or hex edit.
